Guilty Gear Strive fans now have the game servers back online. Let’s have a detailed look at the latest GG Strive update patch notes and see how the characters have been affected.

As you may already know, the first content from Season Pass 1 in Guilty Gear Strive dropped a few hours earlier. Goldlewis Dickinson is the very first playable character joining the roster of GG Strive in update 1.07.

You can take a look at this character’s abilities and fighting method down below. Dickinson’s main weapon against his enemies is a coffin handcuffed to him. He can smash enemies with the coffin more like a hammer, or even use the help of the unknown person inside the coffin to perform some special combos.

Also, you should count on Dickinson’s laser eye for some ranged attacks, before the enemy reaches you.

Having said all that about the new character, he is not the only important stuff in update 1.07. The new update improves the spectating experience, and fixes a lot of bugs in various sections of the game from offline modes to battle system. Let’s take a look at GG Strive patch notes down below.
